    Epub American Duchess ePUB ☆ ¿ 11th century.co american kindle, duchess download, American Duchess KindleI really wanted to like this book as this time period fascinates me and I have loved touring Blenheim and the Newport cottages But I just couldn’t There was so much left unexplained and presumably pivotal years jumped over We all know the basic story of Consuelo Vanderbilt; one of the first of the American heiresses married into British aristocracy We know the marriage was one she didn’t want and was forced on her by her ambitious mother One of my main frustrations with the book is that it glosses over the disintegration of the marriage Arranged marriages were common on both sides of the Atlantic at that time and often the parties managed to rub along well
